Reporting STR/SAR

A reporting entity is an entity that provides any designated services listed under the first schedule of the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism Act 2020 (AML/CFT Act). These entities generally provide financial, non-financial services. All reporting entities must meet obligations under the AML/CFT Act.

In our ongoing efforts to combat money laundering and the financing of terrorism, the FIU has introduced the goAML software solution, developed by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), to replace the traditional STR submission system. This software has already proven successful in use by numerous Financial Intelligence Units (FIUs) worldwide.

The adoption of this fully integrated software tailored for FIUs not only enhances the effectiveness of data collection but also streamlines the analysis and investigative processes.

Utilizing goAML will facilitate reporting entities in submitting their reports on suspicious activity or transaction more swiftly and efficiently. Additionally, it will foster improved communication between the FIU, reporting entities, and stakeholders. 

Consequently, various aspects such as data and document handling , workflows, and the overall analytical procedures will experience notable enhancements.
